HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 27, 2014 – Four High Point University photography students recently had their work accepted into a juried exhibition at the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro.
The works were selected for the “Obscure” exhibit being shown from Feb. 7 to March 14. The exhibit shows selected works from students in North Carolina colleges and universities.
The selected works from HPU are “Mandolin Mike,” by Hannah Bailey; “Long Board Girl,” by Ingrid Cross; “Tall Trees with Eastern Light,” by Melissa Bius; and “Polaris” and “Ape,” by Christopher Doyle.
“To have professional artists select my work, because of its quality, is much higher praise than I ever expected,” says Bailey. “I wouldn’t be where I am without Dr. Cherl Harrison, associate professor of photography. She is extremely talented and her many years of experience make her a great teacher.”
“It is exciting to see students achieve excellence in photography while producing images that evoke simplicity, clarity and order,” says Harrison. “Within the tedious processes and final print, a greater self-awareness is one of the most significant rewards.”
